8% for the first time since january 2009. president obama cheered the figures; mitt romney criticized the administration for not creating enough jobs. good evening. i'm judy woodruff. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. on the newshour tonight, what do the numbers tell us about the true state of the labor market? we get an assessment. >> woodruff: then, gwen ifill reports on missouri's senate contest where the democratic incumbent has unexpectedly grabbed the lead. >> this the united states senate. mark shields an david brooks >> brown: mark shields and david brooks analyze the weeks news. >> woodruff: and ray suarez previews another political match to watch, thousands of miles south in venezuela, where long- time leader hugo chavez faces a young challenger. >> the election marks a watershed moment for the world's second largest oil producing nation. and a critical supplier of crude oil to the u.s. its number one customer. >> woodruff: that's all ahead tonighs nehour >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: carnegie corp >> and with the ongoing support of th
is cooking the books for president obama would you. then he doubled down on it on tv. >> it just defies the imagination to have a surge larger than -- any surge since 1983 a month before the election. i leave it to you to do all of the analysis. these numbers defy logic. you don't think it is coincidental that we have got the biggest surge since 1983 in the job surge? come on, chris. >> jennifer: jack, jack jack. how the mighty have fallen. they don't like the data, so instead of re-examine mining their ideas, they are conjuring up conspiracies that wouldn't pass the x-files. this nonsense almost isn't even worth a response except unchecked fox news might turn it into, quote unquote, fact. the retail is this the economy is headed in the right direction, and that -- and that sadly is a fact you can trust. for some actual analysis and perspective and context, we are going to turn to laura tyson who is the former chair of economic advise source and we are excited because you also current tv's economic advisor. thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room" agai
in the presidential campaign. it was the kind of news that president obama hoped for, just over a month before the election and two days after a sub-par debate outing. >> more americans entered the work force, more people are getting jobs. >> brown: indeed, september's unemployment rate, calculated by a survey of households, fell to 7.8%. that's the lowest since the president took office. a second survey, of businesses, showed that employers added a net of 114,000 jobs, and job gains for july and august were revised upward by 86,000 the president touted the numbers in a campaign stop at george mason university in fairfax, virginia. >> now, every month reminds us that we've still got too many of our friends and neighbors who are looking for work. there are too many middle class families that are still struggling to pay the bills. they were struggling long before the crisis hit. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> brown: that was a swipe at republican m
august. the obama and romney campaign jumped on these figures and, of course, they came down on opposite sides. cnn political editor paul steinhauser joining us this morning. good morning, paul. so there's one month, hard to believe, till election day, and no issue bigger than jobs, right? >> no doubt about that, randi, and you're right. after what you could consider a tough week for the president coming out of that debate in denver the jobs numbers are a good sign for his re-election bid, a happy sign for the re-election team, but for mitt romney this is fascinating, landi, because the unemployment rate is below 8% for the first time since barack obama came into the white house back in january of 2009. you have heard mitt romney on the campaign trail over and over again, over the last year and a half running for the white house, criticize this president on jobs for the unemployment rate being over 8%. now it is under 8%. now it's time for mr. romney to have to pivot from his favorite line. take a listen to both candidates on the campaign trail yesterday reacting to the jobs numbers. >>
.8% in september, a drop of .3% in august. the current rate is the lowest level since president obama took office. critics of the president question the bounceback. some suggesting the books may even have been cooked. jack welch, the former v. owe of general electric, tweeted this. welch later came on cnn's "anderson cooper 360" and said if he had that tweet to do over again, he would have added one thing. >> so many politicians these days are saying like michele bachmann will say something that factually is nocht correct and they'll say i'm just asking the question. is it responsible to say i'm just asking the question, but to say they'll do anything. >> i should have put the question mark. a question mark would have been better at the back of that. >> so you are kind of backing away -- >> i'm not backing away. >> you wish you could amend your tweet? >> i wish i added a question mark to the back of it. but the same implications. >> to say something like this is like donald trump saying that president obama is not an american citizen without any proof. you are jack welch. you got to take this opp
of us were waiting this week for mitt romney and barack obama to connect with reality, to connect with the lives we actually live. it didn't happen. the 90-minute debate went by, for example, without a word about immigration. not a thing said about the countless people trapped in our muddled policy. and this in colorado, a swing state, where both romney and obama have been courting the large hispanic vote. that wouldn't have happened if my guest on this week's broadcast had been moderating the debate, but their participation was rejected by the tiny group of insiders who set the rules. that's a shame because george ram mows and maria elena sorena are two of the most popular journalists. they work for the most important spanish language network in the country, univision. i met them for the first time earlier this week when they were in town to receive the emmy award for lifetime achievement from the national academy of television arts and sciences. here's part of the video presentation that introduced them to the emmy audience. >> they're two of the most well-recognized journalists
and stands in the face of staggering numbers from the barack obama campaign reporting last month they collected over $181 million. that does not rival what obama did four years ago in october, before the 2008 presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the obama campaign was putting up, romney staffers smiled as if to suggest they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of the debate in which the romney campaign it really defined the race, a choice between a dependency society with rising taxes that could hurt the recovery, versus the romney agenda which could cut taxes and rely fully on a smaller government and individual responsibility and entrepreneurial spirit and the romney campaign is attacking ever harder. here's a sample from last night. >> it has been calculated his tax plan raising taxes will cost 700,000 jobs. i will not raise taxes on small business and not raise taxes on middle inc
and excuses for president barack obama's poor debate performance. can the attack technique back fire on the president's campaign. >> chaos reigns furiously as atlanta braves fans lash out after a controversial call. watch this. >> there are bottles and cans falling short and landing on fans down in the seats close to the field. >> infield fly truly blame. "fox & friends" begins right now. >> look boys and girls. >> hi, clayton, bring in the old refs. >> different sport. >> >> dave is on vacation, huh. >> that's why you are here. >> okay. >> we should mention this morning that mike jerrick, we brought him back down to sea level because of the high altitude. >> is that the explanation? >> i have used that before for many excuses i have used over the years. a rash, many different excuses. >> high altitude for your poor debate performance? that was, of course, one of the excuses we were hearing about this week. al gohl gore floating the excuse that high altitude the reason for the poor debate performance. he gave that incredible speech at the dnc in denver. remember that rousing speech w
. >>> a breath of fresh air for obama campaign with friday's job report. jobs are up, unemployment down. is it too little, too late? >>> 500 convicted felons could be set free in massachusetts. why? this chemist allegedly tampered with evidence for the last nine years. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. victor blackwell is off today. it is 7:00 on the east coast. we have new developments in the shooting that killed a u.s. border patrol agent. the fbi now thinks he may have died by friendly fire. 30-year-old nicholas ivy was shot and killed this week in arizona. initially they said he came under fire after responding to a sensor that went off, but authorities say the only shell casings found at the scene were those belonging to the agents. >> as you know investigators have made evidence looking into the death. the result of friendly fire. the fact is, the work of the border patrol is dangerous. all of us wear the uniform and know that protect their communities against those who wish to do us harm. >> that news comes as homeland security secretary janet napolitano traveled to mee
working for the campaign. president obama stopped in virginia to highlight the new unemployment figure which dropped. speaking of the unemployment figure, 114 jobs were created according to the department and not only can you comment on that new figure in our first 45 minutes but we also would like you to talk about your job status. did you gain a job or lose one? tellus kilobit about where you stand as far as jobs are concerned -- tell us a little bit about where you stand as far as jobs are concerned. the numbers are on your screen -- social media is available to you as well -- a look at some of the newspapers nationwide reflecting the number that was reported by the labor department. if you take a look at some of the newspapers, they broke it down statistically what happened as far as the labor picture. this is a breakdown from " the new york times" -- you can take a look at the demographics for unemployment -- that is some of the individual breakdowns from the labor picture yesterday. many comments are being made about the number itself. this is "the washington post" -- this comes
that was completely wrong. >> and friday, another october surprise. president obama getting a boost with the new unemployment rate report. the rate dipping below 8 persh for the first time since the president took office in 2009, which brings us to the next surprise. the obama campaign cash that was raised last month. september proved to be a lucrative month for the president's re-election campaign. democrats raised $181 million. that's a record. joining me live from washington, peter hamby. that's a whole lot of cash raised. very amazing. say many, and all in one month. how was it done? big donors, small donors, what? >> the campaign says 98% of this money came from people giving $250 or less. sptd was a very big month for democrats. polls show that the convention really brought home the democratic base and these numbers just reaffirm it. this is the biggest monthly total of this campaign. this is the money that the obama campaign and the democratic national committee have collected together. it means they're only about $50 million short of raising $1 billion for this whole campaign. so they're
to twitter and the air waves, suggesting the obama campaign cooked the numbers. >> i don't know what the right number is. but i'll tell you, these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> reporter: many experts laughed off the charge. but the labor secretary, whose department compiles the monthly report, was not laughing. >> i'm insulted when i hear that. it's really ludicrous to hear that kind of statement. >> reporter: now, we know that here in florida, along with mitt romney, is rob portman, who plays president obama in debate preparation. they'll be doing a bit of that today before an event tonight. the president has nothing on his schedule. we don't know what he's doing. no guidance on whether he's preparing for the next debate. as for the last debate, dan and bianna, some democrats are saying what debate, after the jobs report. >>> we're joined by john avlon, senior analyst with "the daily beast." these allegations that the numbers are somehow cooked are shocking and dangerous, especially from somebody as prominent as jack welch. what do
